This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first ECCAD conference at Drexel University. The East Coast Computer Algebra Day (ECCAD) is an annual one-day meeting for those interested in computer algebra and symbolic mathematical computation. It provides opportunities to learn and to share new results and current work in progress. This year we focus on emerging methodologies and applications. The panel discussion this year will consist of two parts, on potential research trajectories and thesis topics. Furthermore, a best poster award will be given at the end of the conference meeting. Following the ECCAD tradition, there will be ample opportunity for interaction among the participants. Researchers, teachers, students, and users of computer algebra are all welcome!

The poster sessions at ISSAC offer a forum for researchers to present recent research results or ongoing projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting nonetheless. Posters reporting on recent work published or accepted or submitted elsewhere are also welcome (with original publication clearly referenced).

The East Coast Computer Algebra Day (ECCAD) is a one-day meeting for those interested in computer algebra and symbolic mathematical computation. It provides opportunities to learn and to share new results and current work in progress. The schedule includes prominent invited speakers along with contributed posters and software demonstrations. Plenty of time is allowed for unstructured interaction among the participants. Researchers, teachers, students, and users of computer algebra are all welcome!
